Looking for a silver lining
The plan is set, two M1000 amps from Red Dragon and an XM44 crossover (80 hz, 12 db slope) from Marchand...would appreciate any advice on power cords for the mono amps and eq, and an XLR to go between them...dCS Puccini cd player/processor will be... 
Looking for a silver lining
I think I have a plan. Two Red Dragon M1000 mono amps (500/1000 WPC 8/4 ohms), a crossover from Marchand, and advice from Revel on crossover frequency/slopes...was leaning toward the Bryston crossover since it is adjustable, but think if I get all...

The OFFICAL Apple TV thread
I just installed the new Rega DAC running the optical out from a ATV1 to it. I have a Conrad Johnson MET 1 that has an ambience retrieval setting that derives rear, center and LFE signals from the 2 channel original. A little adjustment on the syn...

tagging onto an old thread but I just took a Levinson 32 preamp out from between my DCS Puccini and Krell Evo 600s...after I switched the output level on the Puccini to 6v I am sold on the direct route...my IMac loaded with 600 CDs is my only sour...
